I lately thought a bit about what actually drives me to keep doing what I do. Yes, I know that I definitely want to go on with it, but I nevertheless wanted to know why.
And since it might be helpful for others who aren’t sure if they want to go with what they’re doing, here it is:
As our society grew heavily over the last centuries, we were introduced to a lot of complicated mechanisms in our everyday life.
Although most of them were initially designed to protect both our freedom and our ability to change our environment based on our own expectations and ideas while still paying attention to each resident’s own opinion, they rather chained most of us to our desks for long hours. Instead of allowing everyone to do what they want.
Technology solves these problems. We’re building more and more hard- and software that is able to do most of the boring work by itself, so that we’re able to enjoy our valuable time.
